Well, we finally know why Omarosa Manigault was fired from the Trump administration.
According to a report published Tuesday by Politico, the “Apprentice” alum and current “Celebrity Big Brother” contestant had been using the White House car service as her own personal commuting taxi — and yeah, that’s not allowed.
White House Chief of Staff John Kelly dismissed Manigault in December after learning that the former director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison had violated federal rules with her use of the White House car service, three administration officials told Politico.
Not only had she used the government cars for office pick-up and drop-off, Politico reported that Manigault then tried to “storm the White House residence to appeal to Trump, according to one of the officials, accidentally tripping an electronic Secret Service wire that monitors entry and egress from the residence.”
The reality show at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue continues — without Omarosa now. Read more from Politico’s piece on Kelly and the whole Rob Porter mess here.
